Dawn of the Rising Sun Scenarios

Selected Option:

      In February 1904, Russia had the world’s third largest fleet, while that of Japan’s was ranked fourth. By September 1905, Japan had become number three and Russia had fallen below the top ten. Dawn of the Rising Sun contains nineteen scenarios for the Admiralty Trilogy’s Dawn of the Battleship game, covering all the major surface engagements of the Russo-Japanese War, which led to this stunning reversal of fortunes.

      Dawn of the Rising Sun is used with Dawn of the Battleship rules, which are part of the Admiralty Trilogy system, making them easy to follow for experienced gamers and novices alike. Tactical turns represent three minutes, with intermediate turns (for extended maneuvering) representing 30 minutes. Gun hit chances are based on a combination of factors such as visibility, range, target size, number of rounds fired at the target, and the speed of the firing and target platforms.

            In addition to well-known battles such as Port Arthur, Yellow Sea, and the Tsushima Strait, several smaller battles have been included. The scenario book is full of original after action reports as well as helpful sidebars on a wide range of topics. Each scenario has its own map, showing the disposition of forces. The separate annex booklet includes all the ships that were involved, including information on the guns, torpedoes, and fire control of the era, making it a valuable reference in itself.

           Players purchasing the Dawn of the Rising Sun cenario booklet will also need the 28-page annex booklet ($4.00), which provides information on all the ships and weapons needed to play the scenarios.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
